Poco X2 Google Camera Mod (GCam Mod) and how to install it.
I love installing Google Camera on Android phones because Google’s image processing is one of the best if not the best. Kudos to the developers who put in all the hard work in order to make such good quality Google Camera Mods for so many phones out there.
Poco X2 has been in the market for quite some time now and it has a great set of cameras. I personally have been having the best time while shooting images and videos with the Poco X2. But the thing that makes the camera experience even better is, installing Google Camera on Poco X2. Poco X2 comes with a Snapdragon 730G processor because of which it becomes easier for the developers to make GCam Mods for this phone. Same goes for custom ROM development. It is easier because of the Qualcomm processor as opposed to a Meditek processor. Anyway, let’s go ahead and see how to install Google Camera on your POCO X2
